Apr 1st 2012 11:34AM You need spoiler etiquette...
Mar 23rd 2012 6:52PM You have to wait until the time is being paid for. If it is a game card then it is immediate, otherwise, you have to wait for the 7 days. Then you have to go to the scroll of resurrection section of your battle.net account and claim the mount.
Thanks for reminding me, I'd forgotten the 7 days passed a few days back...
Mar 23rd 2012 6:41PM People who receive one can only use a scroll once. Otherwise it's an incentive to keep unsubbing to get the next reward from the next promotion.
Mar 23rd 2012 6:37PM I'd be wary of doing this since it is an exploit even though it is outside of the game. I recall seeing a blue post saying it was intentional that you couldn't split the boost and xfer, (although I can't find the post again now).
Mar 23rd 2012 10:54AM My own opinion here, since I don't have any facts at hand just memory. But I believe this was always the long game. I got the impression from talks Chris Metzen and Alex Afrasiabi did at Blizzcon 2010 (prior to Cataclysm) that Garrosh was not going to be around forever. At the time they were trying to defend putting him in charge and were hinting that people needed to wait for the story to come to fruition.
Mar 22nd 2012 6:19AM On my alchemist I could (potentially) learn to transmute to Trillium. That appears to be the Truegold equivalent.
Mar 21st 2012 9:45PM Been playing since early vanilla, and signed up for the annual pass during the first night of Blizzcon.
The download isn't working yet, but the client downloader is available and the character copy appears to be live.
Mar 12th 2012 11:44AM I recall seeing a 90 day limit mentioned when I did it, but that could have specifically been the time from accepting the Scroll to when I had to claim the boost to 80.
Mar 11th 2012 4:31PM They never had 1 million potential beta testers to cope with at once before. I suspect it will be phased entry into the beta as usual for the annual pass folks, probably selecting people at random.
Mar 8th 2012 11:57AM I did wonder about this too. There seems to be a lot of second accounts being reactivated for the free lvl 80 toon and a mount. All those that pay for a month for the mount will be counted in this quarters figures but are likely to vanish again before the end of June. It strikes me that if that if they wanted to not see another dip in subscriptions, there should be a new incentive to be subscribed such as the expansion released or in beta and imminent...
